Comicbook Review: Word for Word Bible Comic: The Gospel of Matthew (Simon Amadeus Pillario)

Summary: The Gospel of Matthew tells the life of Jesus Christ and how He is the promised Messiah to the Jewish audience the gospel writer and apostle Matthew, intended it to. So you’ll read from time to time references from the Old Testament to support what Matthew wants his readers to know. As for the comic this is a literally the Gospel of Matthew in comicbook form using the NIV. Nothing added or taken out. In fact it has a map and additional articles (with Pillario’s artwork and real images) at the back including a gospel presentation.

Cover Art: Like what I have said, Matthew’s intent target in writing this book are the Jewish people. So it’s evident that you’ll find some a bit of Jewishness on the cover (the candlesticks and scroll found in the synagogues). I like how Pillario place it behind Jesus creating a halo.

(Interview) Jerrel Pilarta on Rap Music and Doctrines of Grace

When you hear the word “rap”, what comes to your mind? Probably you’ll think about popular rappers like Francis M. or Gloc 9. You might also think of the message of their songs that you hear on the radio like nationalism, peace and unity.

But do you know there is a Christian artist who raps about the gospel? In fact, he raps about the Doctrines of Grace or Calvinism in his latest EP. I connected with Jerrel Pilarta, an indie gospel rap artist and we talk about Calvinism, rap music and his new release titled TULIP.

How did you came to know Christ?

I grew up in a Christian household, so ever since bata pa ako lagi ko ng naririnig ang Gospel. Pero for me, I believe last 2016 ko lang na fully grasp ang Gospel at natanggap ng buong puso. Nung na realize ko na kahit sobrang makasalan ako, papatawarin pa rin ako ni Jesus if I will repent and accept Him as my Lord and Savior. Dun nag-sink in sakin ang ibig sabihin ng grace.

Who introduced you to the doctrine of grace?
